Barber also answered if she loves Drake, if she's riding, if she'll never ever leave.

Kanye West can breathe a sigh of relief, Drake was NOT talking about his wife Kim Kardashian.

In an interview on Power 106 Los Angeles Tuesday, K'yanna Barber a.k.a "Kiki" confirmed she was the woman referenced in Drake's hit "In My Feelings."

Mystery grew over who the singer's crush was as the song, which sprouted a viral dance challenge, quickly gained popularity throughout the summer. But fans need look no further now that Oakland, California, native K'yanna has been identified.

"I was kind of surprised by it myself when I heard it," Barber said. "I was sitting in the living room with my son, my brother, my mom. We was just listening to the album ['Scorpion'] like everybody else. You know, it's Drake. He dropped new music. You listen to it."

For those that have been living under a rock, Drake croons in the chorus of "In My Feelings": "Kiki, do you love me?/ Are you riding?/ Say you'll never ever leave from beside me/ 'Cause I want ya, and I need ya/ And I'm down for you always/ KB, do you love me?/ Are you riding?/ Say you'll never ever leave from beside me/ 'Cause I want ya, and I need ya/ And I'm down for you always."

Barber didn't think that the hip-hop single was about her because she said there were "a lot of little Kikis running around in everybody hood." However, it was one particular part of the song that revealed to Barber who Drake was singing about.

"When we heard 'KB' that's when my mom started going crazy because that's my actual initials," she said.

Power 106 host DJ Felli Fel asked Barber if Drake ended up receiving an answer to the magic question: "Kiki, do you love me?"

"I feel like he knows the answer," she said. "You got to ask him. I don't know what he wants to hear back."

Barber also told the radio station about working on her own music, how she met Drake while dancing for Kamaiyah, and revealed she went to high school with G-Eazy.
